People queue up for Covid-19 testing without maintaining social distancing outside the capital’s Mugda General Hospital around 8:20am yesterday. Those standing at the front of the queue reached there as early as 6:00am as the hospital would test only 200 for the day. With the country recently seeing a spike in the number of novel coronavirus cases, such lines at testing facilities are getting longer. Photo: Anisur Rahman

Workers of Jatiya Sangsad Bhaban were yesterday seen huddled up to buy milk from the government dairy farm at the subsidised rate of Tk 50 per kg.
